Supercharging I6 - VCT or HP

I'm think of buying a AUII XR6 later this year and was considering installing a supercharger to it. My question is, should I go with a HP motor or pay extra and get one with a VCT engine in it?

PS Great forum. Have been reading it for a while.

Either, capa do kits for both.

HP's are lighter, but VCT has IRS. Let that be the decision maker, rather than the engine.

I like the idea of a lightweight car but since the motor will have a supercharger added would the VCT technology be more of a power advantage in a blown situation. If it was I could justify the extra expense.

From a previous FF thread on the "HP vs VCT motor" a few members said the power advantage of the VCT over the HP was only marginal and the extra weight of the IRS actually made the VCT equipped vehicle slower.

$36 HP+supercharger $7????
won't give you more than 30% power increase anyway, plus premium sucking machine.
Get the 220kw XR8, reliable power output from tickford for the same price!warranty for 100000KM is much more valuable I reckon.

If I was you wait till the AV turbo comes out, or get yourself a au xr8 and bolt on a blower.

Powerdyne do bolt on kits for falcons.
capa are slightly overpriced
there are ALOT of superchargers for falcons, its a matter of u want a bolt on or a job thta u have to make your own brackets etc! which isnt that hard either!

its a rough 3000-5500 full kit depending on if your LPG, fuel, 6psi or 9psi and brand/bolt on!
